Do you like to read interesting books?  Would you like to know what books are fun and interesting to read?  Would you like to talk to others about books that you read?  Civano Book Club may be for you.

Civano Book Club was started by Ardi Whalen in 2003.  “The best part about this book club is that I read books that I ordinarily would not have read”, says Ardi.   Currently, there are 15 members on the e-mail roster, some are winter visitors others live here year around.  Civano Book Club meets on the second Monday of the month at 6:30 pm (please note the new time) excluding July, August, and December.

The person who selects the book is the leader of the monthly discussion.  Sometimes members prefer to lead at the rotunda.  Other members prefer to lead in their home.

Members meet at the end of the year and offer monthly selections for the following year.

All genres of books are considered:  fiction, non-fiction, historical fiction, finance, the classics, etc.  Last year we went to Afghanistan, Galveston, TX, Mongolia and Arizona.  And we visited the financial world, and the supernatural world.

The November book club selection is The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  Faye Vamvakias will be leading the discussion in her home. We do not meet in December.

Won’t you come and join us for the next book club meeting?  Bring a friend.  For more information call Jan Terry at 762-9016.
